Entry is by membership card only

When presented to the door entry pad, the security system records the

person, time and date of entry. 

This is to allow the club to fully adhere to the Government’s

Track and Trace System.

We have also agreed that one Member is allowed to sign in 2 guests at the discretion of the on duty Committee Member.

Sports Bar

As from Saturday 1st August, the Sports Bar was reopened to Members,  but, social distancing will still have to be observed.  There will be a limit of people allowed in the Sports Bar at any one time and if too many Members wish to use the Sports bar late entry Members will have to use the main room.  This is to ensure the safety of our staff and our Members.   

Members have preference over guests.

The rules currently observed in the main room will need to be observed in the Sports Bar.  Please help us to help you and your fellow Members. 


Polite request to all our Smokers, please do not smoke or congregate directly in front of the door, please smoke to the side, and if raining, please use the umbrellas supplied in the foyer. Please also observe social distancing rules in place even outside.

Live Entertainment will commence fortnightly

 Depending on the support given this may be more frequent in September and going forward.    Obviously the Club would ask that any guidance in place at that time is observed.


We are looking to commence other activities within the Club i.e.

Skittles, Quiz Night etc. when we are able.


Thank you for your continued patience and to all of our Members who have attended the Club since opening a Big Thank You, and to those Members who have not been able to attend so far, we look forward to seeing you as soon as possible.

Attendance is critical to the survival of the club, the extended hours and entertainments will only be possible if you support your club.



Please be aware, you must not come into the club if you are directed to self-isolate on returning from holiday destinations where the government has deemed you must do so for 14 days. You may come into the club on the 15th day after returning.

Membership, renewals and card replacement

Late renewals are accepted due to the lockdown.

Lost cards must be replaced, please your give details to the person on the door.


Illegal entry & exit

Anyone leaving the club by any other means than the front door may be suspended or barred.

Anyone opening a fire door to allow entry to another person may be suspended or barred from the club.

Standard rules

Things to take into consideration when attending the Club:

Entry by card only - No card, no entry

• Your name and time of entry will be recorded electronically in order to observe the Government’s rules on track and trace

• Two Guests per member

• Please observe social distancing

• Please use hand sanitizer on entering the Club

• Contactless payments preferred.

• Snooker players – One game only if names on board.

• When snooker game finished, please take all balls out of pockets and wipe clean using the wipes provided, and place back on table.

This is a generalized list of things the Club has to respectfully ask its Members to adhere to in the current climate.

Please use common sense at all times, if we are found not to be adhering to Government guidelines we may find ourselves in a position of having to close our doors again. Please help us to ensure that this does not happen.
